Lost Lobster Cottage
A Romantic Retreat in the Pretty Coastal Village of Embleton
Lost Lobster Cottage is a traditional village home, brimming with character which overlooks the Dene – a quiet open space in the heart of the quaint coastal village of Embleton. This gorgeous cottage has been completely renovated, stripped back to the bare stone and lovingly restored back to its original form – with all the modern luxuries, of course!
Lost Lobster Cottage is situated in a central part of the pretty little village of Embleton, just a few minutes walk from beautiful Embleton beach (16 minutes to be exact!). There’s a choice of 3 great pubs in the village – 2 with restaurants – all of which serve good food, as well as a village store for essentials. Embleton is on the Coastal Route which leads north to Low Newton, Beadnell, Seahouses and Bamburgh, or south down to Boulmer, Craster, Alnmouth and Warkworth. The village is very central for exploring all of the quaint villages on our stunning coastline, as well as in land to Alnwick and beyond.
The cottage sleeps 4 guests and welcomes up to 3 dogs. There’s private parking, a large enclosed garden and pretty views over the Dene for sunny days and balmy evenings. It has a wood burning stove in the lounge (of course!) and a fabulous claw foot roll-top bath in the Victorian-inspired bathroom, for cosy, romantic nights in. Lost Lobster Cottage is a truly gorgeous escape in a beautiful Northumbrian village setting.
Lost Lobster Cottage sleeps 4 guests in 2 bedrooms; 1 king size room and 1 twin bedroom that can be converted into a super king. There’s 1 bathroom with a claw-foot roll-top bath with a shower over. The lounge has a wood burning stove and super-comfy, stylish sofas with the usual mod-cons. The dining kitchen has dual aspect original sash windows with a dining table seating up to 5 guests.
The garden is large, lawned, furnished and enclosed with a 4ft fence. The cottage is semi-detached and in a quiet area in the village. The position of the cottage makes the garden very private, only looking onto the Dene which is the historical green patch in the centre of the village. There’s a private parking for 1 car and additional parking on the roadside if desired. 3 dogs are very welcome at Lost Lobster Cottage and free WiFi is throughout the house.
Enter into the porch that leads directly into the lounge or kitchen. You can leave wet wellies or muddy boots here to dry.
The kitchen has been beautiful restored and has dual aspect Georgian sash windows, one of which looks out to the grassy Dene. The kitchen has all integrated Bosch appliances, including a fridge, freezer, hob, electric fan oven, dishwasher, toaster, kettle, Nespresso-compatible coffee machine (initial supply of pods provided), double sink and mixer tap. The washing machine is in the laundry room.
The dining table seats 5 guests.
The gorgeous, cosy lounge also has windows looking out over the garden out to the Dene. Focusing on the wood burning stove in the inglenook fireplace (an initial supply of logs provided between October and April), the lounge has comfy, stylish sofas, an Ultra HD 4k Smart TV with access to Netflix (with your own account) and a Bluetooth wireless speaker. There’s plenty of board games for all ages and a lovely rug in front of the fire for tired dogs to curl up in front of after a day on the beach.
The laundry room is a great place for dogs to sleep and to keep wet coats and muddy boats. It houses the washing machine and has a drying rack too.
The downstairs cloakroom has a WC, wash hand basin and a towel rail.
Upstairs you will find the master bedroom, twin/super king room and the grand bathroom too.
This pretty room has a king size bed (5ft wide) with a 3000 pocket sprung mattress, wardrobe and drawer space. Original sash windows look onto the Dene, fluffy towels and luxury linens are provided as well as a hairdryer. Bathrobes are available on request for adult guests.
Twin/Super king Bedroom
This equally spacious bedroom offers twin single beds (3ft wide) and the option to convert these into a super king size (6ft wide) if you would prefer. There is limited hanging space but plenty of drawer space. Fluffy towels and luxury linens are provided as well as a hairdryer. This bedroom has the same peaceful view over the Dene, which is idyllic to wake up to every morning. Bathrobes are available on request for adult guests.
The gorgeous, Victorian-inspired bathroom is dominated by the claw foot roll-top bath – with a shower over – which is just perfect for a good soak after a long walk on the beach. In addition to the fabulous bath tub, you will find a wash basin, WC, heated towel rail and a selection of luxury-branded complimentary toiletries.
The long garden is north-west facing, so certainly gets the sun the best in the later afternoon and evening. There’s a table and chairs to sit out and a secure shed for storing bikes. The garden is enclosed with a 4ft dry stone wall, split level lawns, borders and shrubs and overlooks the Embleton Dene, making a very pleasant space to sit out and enjoy the fresh air. A dry stone wall runs between the cottage and the Dene.
There is 1 private parking space direct outside the cottage, opposite the back door. It can be reach via a narrow entrance into an enclosed courtyard. Access is required by other residents who live further down the lane, so it’s important guests don’t fully block access for other residents. There is an additional parking space for at least 1 car on a grassy area, on the lane outside the cottage. Additionally, there is lots of available space along the road outside the cottage.
